Legendary 70’s rock band Sweet has postponed their pre-Christmas UK Tour to 2021 as well as adding dates in Birmingham (Dec 2), Bexhill (Dec 4) and Nottingham (Dec 19).

The 16-date nationwide tour will start on November 25th, 2021, in Brighton and end on December 20, 2021 in Bury St Edmunds. Special guests on the tour are the popular Thin Lizzy tribute band Limehouse Lizzy.

All tickets remain valid and available to buy via www.planetrocktickets.co.uk, www.thegigcartel.com and the 24 Hour Box Office 08444 780 898.

Sweet continue to tour and perform to sell out audiences around the globe with over 55 million records sold worldwide and 34 number 1 hits worldwide.

By the early 70’s The Sweet were arguably the hottest ticket in town with a string of top ten records in the UK and Europe including “Blockbuster”, “Hellraiser”, “Ballroom Blitz”, “Teenage Rampage” and “The Sixteens”.

In 1975 the USA had discovered the band with “Fox on the Run” hitting the number 3 spot in the Billboard 100. Another self-penned hit “Action” followed in 1976 firmly establishing Sweet in the US charts.

On the face of it they were primarily a singles band, however, with the landmark albums including “Desolation Boulevard” (1975) and “Give Us a Wink ”(1976), the band showed a much harder rocking band. The album “Level Headed”, released in 1978, brought with it another award winning million-selling worldwide hit with “Love is Like Oxygen” written by Andy Scott.

In 1979, lead singer Brian Connolly left the original line up leaving Andy Scott, Steve Priest and Mick Tucker to continue as a three-piece. Sadly, both Brian Connolly and Mick Tucker passed away in 1997 and 2002 respectively, and with Steve Priest relocating to the USA, Andy Scott was left to fly the flag.

The 2020 line-up features founding member, Andy Scott (lead guitar, vocals), Steve Mann (guitar, keyboards), Bruce Bisland (drums, vocals), Lee Small (bass, vocals) and Paul Manzi (lead vocals).

Sweet still tour the world extensively with one of the most dynamic and slick live shows on the circuit. 1968 to 2020, 52 years and counting of hellraising, star chasing, trail blazing. The Sweet continue to walk loud and proud in the rock and roll universe.

Now entering their 27th year as a professional international touring act, Limehouse Lizzy, arguably the premier tribute to Thin Lizzy, continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band alive, well and dominating stages worldwide.

From an official Billboard and PRS award, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados, a major appearance in the BBC 2 “Arena” documentary “Into the Limelight” (still available on BBC iPlayer) to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy have completed their 26th year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.

In keeping with a schedule that includes international tours (UAE, Germany, USA, Scandinavia etc.), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest, F1) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they have started 2020 with a string of European tour dates, to go on to what will be an exhausting year-long schedule concluding with a UK tour with original glam-rock legends, Sweet. The Boys are back!
